Build A scalable real-time backend for your web app. Yet another interesting CAAS component.

Yay...i met the founder and had a friend working there is its earliest of days. cool company

I wonder if combination of such components will allow javascript developers to build fully functional scalable apps.

Good question.

I mean, this sounds like a holy grail: "Firebase's synchronization approach can provide all of the data storage and transmission needs of many apps. In fact, in most cases, Firebase can completely replace an app's server-side components. This means that developers no longer need to build complicated backend software. They can instead build their apps entirely with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and spend the time they save focusing on their customers' core problems."

I think with the good CAAS product coverage it's a possibility to get there.

Cloud -> PAAS -> CAAS.

Seems like we're at least a few years away from truly reliable services.

Even AWS and Twitter still fail regularly in 2012.
